You’ve got to hand it to the Vancouver Canucks Green Men. Is there another team mascot(s) in sports that embodies the energy of its fans combined with everything you fear about participatory theater? via TO posted by Dave from var conf_38696 = { APIKey: '2_N1YlfjHIEAtyRAK3CAYRE5a1aBuANuMOCLc_7hsOQ13HnwCrW_u-6OuDhjC7vR06 ', lang : 'en', enabledProviders: '' }; var image38696 = {src:'',href:'',type:'image'}; var ua_38696 = new; ua_38696.setUserMessage(''); ua_38696.setLinkBack(''); ua_38696.setTitle('Hockey Tights in Canada'); ua_38696.addMediaItem(image38696); var params_38696 ={ userAct...

Zack Kassian 'day-to-day' 'upper body'

Sometime during the game against the Ducks, rookie forward Zack Kassian picked up an unspecified upper body injury and left the game. The Canucks are in playoff mode now so info is limited other than Kassian will not play tonight and Byron Bitz has been promoted from Chicago. Does this hinder the Vancouver Canucks? The big winger has just three points since coming over from Buffalo.

Canucks playoff scenarios - possible opponents

Have you stopped by the NWSB Canucks forum tonight hoping for some clarification on who the Canucks might play starting next week in Round 1 of the NHL Playoffs? Not sure I can help. I'll take a shot. If on Saturday night the Canucks grab one single solitary point they'll end up 1st in the West and play the loser of the Sharks vs. Kings matchup, which is also on Saturday...

Schneider: Canucks should start Luongo in playoffs

Cory Schneider isn't interested in any goaltending controversy. In fact, the Vancouver Canucks netminder told The Province that the team should start Roberto Luongo in the playoffs. "He’s the guy who got us to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals last year, not me,” Schneider said of Luongo. “He’s clearly earned the right to (start the playoffs), both through his performance...

Report- Daniel Sedin Health Update

via TSN, Vancouver Canucks winger Daniel Sedin has been skating on his own for the past few days and is doing well as he attempts to recover from a concussion. According to a team source, the star forward will be “fine for next week.” Daniel was injured March 21 when he took an elbow in the head from Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith. The NHL suspended Keith five games...

The Canucks Prepare For Playoffs

In the regular season, teams are limited to 23 players on their roster and they must keep their total payroll below the salary cap.  Neither of these rules remain true in playoff time and teams tend to skirt the rules to exceed both of these limits come the start of the playoffs.  No team is doing it as blatantly as the Vancouver Canucks this season.  Injured Canuck players...

Canucks vs. Calgary Flames betting odds & handicapping preview – April 6

Canucks hit the road! 8 in a row? The Vancouver Canucks play their last road game of the 2012 Regular Season on Thursday night when they travel to take the down and out Calgary Flames.

Game 82: Oilers vs. Canucks: Takin’ Care of Business

Doing What it Takes… What happened Thursday night in Calgary was simply put, a letdown. It was predictable and forgivable. After all, the Vancouver Canucks still have a pretty good shot at 1st in the West, not to mention the President’s Trophy. In this preview for the final game of the regular season, we’ll take a look at what scenarios have to play out if the Canucks want...

Game 81 Canucks vs. Flames: Just get the two points

Pretty Please Oh Calgary, how we love thee. With your over-rated GM and lack of raw talent, you make us pity you each and every time we meet. Here on the fields of Rohan…I mean Alberta, we meet again. I don’t know about everyone else; well actually I do, but seriously, this regular season is so January. It sucks having a good team because then you just get to wishing the NHL...

Canucks vs Oilers Game Day Thread

Last game of the regular season is finally here! Season went by real fast! I have a feeling the Canucks will finally find their PP tonight and we win 6-4.

Oilers-Canucks Preview

There's plenty of uncertainty still surrounding the Vancouver Canucks, from the health of their leading goal scorer to the identity of their first-round playoff opponent to exactly what they'll have an opportunity to clinch Saturday night. They can, however, secure the top seed in the Western Conference - if they don't have it already - as they close the regular season...
